The Lions drafted Kerryon Johnson in the second round believing he is a three-down back. That doesn’t mean they want to use the former Auburn star that way.

The Lions signed LeGarrette Blount in free agency Eli Apple Jersey , and they return Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah, the team’s leading rushers from last season. But Detroit, which ranked last in rushing last season, trusts that it finally has drafted a running back who can live up to the hype.

鈥淗e鈥檚 a guy that鈥檚 a three-down player,鈥?running backs coach David Walker said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. 鈥淸At Auburn, he] showed he can play on first, second and third down. He showed he can play in all situations Morgan Cox Jersey , which was important for us. Very productive in a very good league. So you see the physical qualities, the flexibility in terms of how you can use a guy like that, and then you have a chance to meet him and see how smart and driven he is. He鈥檚 kind of the type of player that fits with our program because he鈥檚 smart, he showed he鈥檚 productive and then he has flexibility in terms of first, second, third downs.鈥?/p>

Johnson led the SEC in rushing last season with 1,391 yards, playing in an offense that passed less than 40 percent of the time. He joins an offense that threw 58 percent of the time last year Nazair Jones Jersey , according to Birkett.

Lions General Manager Bob Quinn expects to use Johnson “more to run outside” than inside like Johnson did at Auburn.

鈥淚鈥檝e grew up in the southeast, know a bunch of people from the southeast and I鈥檝e watched a lot of SEC football over the years,鈥?offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter said. 鈥淚t sure was fun to watch him compete on those Saturdays when we鈥檙e maybe making a road trip or at the hotel doing whatever we do. Came to respect him as a competitor and we鈥檙e going to throw him in here and see if he can get better, see how he does.鈥?/p> LeBron James may go from idolized to immortalized in his hometown.

A GoFundMe account has been established with a goal to raise $1 million to sculpt and erect a life-size statue of James in Akron, where he began his basketball career before becoming a superstar with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Aaron Carey, who like James played at Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, began the campaign to raise money to honor the three-time NBA champion.

”We want to do this with the fans,” Carey told the Akron Beacon-Journal . ”We want fans to be able to thank LeBron for what he has done for Akron and the Cavs.”

Carey told the newspaper he has been in contact with artist Omri Amrany Trey Flowers Jersey , who has created statues for basketball greats Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

James was touched by the gesture.

”First of all, thank you,” he said Monday when informed of the movement. ”It would be cool, not only for myself, but for my family and all the people that had anything to do with this journey thus far. I’m appreciative even of the thought.”

The 33-year-old is trying to advance to the Finals for the eighth straight time. To do that, the Cavaliers must eliminate the Boston Celtics Kenny Stills Jersey , who have a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series entering Monday’s Game 4.

An initial rendering of a possible statue by Amrany shows James soaring toward the basket, with his right arm cocked back to deliver a dunk while wearing his signature Nikes and his No. 23 high school jersey.

Carey said a site for the statue has not been finalized.

”We really want this to be in Akron,” he said. ”We talked to (Cavs owner) Dan Gilbert and he wants to put one up in Akron after LeBron retires.”

James laughed when asked if he had a preference on how the statue would depict him.

”I don’t have a particular pose in mind,” he said. ”I think it’s the thought that counts, it’s pretty cool.”

Carey said a marketing campaign is underway to attract donors with deep pockets. The first 15 donors to contribute $30,000 or more would receive a limited edition miniature replica of the statue, signed by the artist.
